Welcome to Dinero Diaries, LLC. where we talk all things #plata #feria #pasta #lana #Varo #luca #pesos or whatever you call #money. We are two twenty-something year old Latinas understanding personal finances, getting out of debt, and building a strong financial future for ourselves and nuestra comunidad.

So, back to the credit card realization: $400 to interest?! For those who understand credit cards, this may not be a shock to you...

At 8 years old I first realized the value of money. My school hosted multiple raffle events to raise funds for programs and it was then I realized I could host a raffle of my own. So, I collected my life savings ($10) and bought a fancy candle and candle holder down at my favorite corner store. I created my own raffle tickets and spent the following week selling them to family members and neighbors for $1. By the end of my raf...
